Nampak Plastics creates 20 jobs investing in Springkerse plant

NampakWebOne of the UK’s leading producers of plastic packaging, Nampak recently concluded a lease on 6,100sqm of industrial space at Springkerse Industrial Estate to manufacture a range of plastic milk bottles, creating 20 new full time jobs.

Nampak has been manufacturing in Scotland for a number of years from its plant in Bellshill.

Eric Collins, managing director of Nampak Plastics Europe, said the decision to invest in the area was driven by the business opportunities that exist in Stirlingshire within the food and drink sector, the unrivalled accessibility to Scottish market places and the proactive approach taken by Stirling Council in the site identification process.

One of Nampak’s key Scottish customers, Graham’s The Family Dairy, intends to finance the new facility – which would be supplied by Nampak – via the Airthrey Green housing project.
Collins said: “The business climate in Stirling, the enthusiasm of local people and the professionalism of Stirling Council has provided us with the confidence to open our latest European plant in Stirling. We’re now looking forward to working with partners in the area to expand our manufacturing operation.

“Looking forward, the new dairy project planned for Hill of Drip would enable a step change in our investment in Stirling, allowing us to create 40 further new full time jobs, in addition to those created by Graham’s The Family Dairy.”

However, some reports say development on the site requires planning consent, which Stirling Council is expected to rule on later this month.

Nampak Plastics is the UK’s leading producer of plastic milk bottles, with 600 staff and nine sites across the UK, producing around two billion bottles annually.
